    Thanks - definitely a time capsule look.

    I went and saw it, it was a very nice bike - that's the high end price imo, but it was for sale in a high end neighborhood! I passed b/c it was a bit too...

    yes, good call - I did think of that as well. He didn't offer though, and my guess is he doesn't. He didn't even sound so sure he had one, so I'm even wondering if that may have meant he was merely...

    Okay - it's on!

    All went well so far; I spoke to the guy just now and he said no worries, he's worked on the Trek IC dropouts before and the angle issue should be fine. I also spoke to him about...

    It really is. For any bike, but especially a nice bike.

    Jamis bikes are nice. The eclipse is probably another one too nice to be subjected to that!

    As a guy who appreciates fine shoes, yes, indeed, the whole selling point of them is they can be rebuilt several times with new soles and heels. Something you usually don't do with, say sneakers or...

    Awesome! Thanks John.

    I realized after posting I was trying to remember the term 'miter cut.' Not sure if that is entirely accurate here, but no matter, as long as my point was clear.

    I like your thinking, RoadGuy.
